Biology Degree and Course Information

There are multiple ways to pursue a degree in biology. It is very important to work with your Pathways Advisor to develop the best academic plan based on where you are starting, and where you are hoping to transfer.

  • For students who want to complete a degree in biology and are academically prepared to take college chemistry (CHE 111) and calculus (MAT 201), the A.S. in Biology may be the most direct path to a Bachelor’s degree in this field.
  • The requirements for biology degrees at transfer institutions are highly variable. Therefore, a general A.S. degree may be a better fit.

It is strongly recommended that you meet with your Pathways Advisor to create the best academic plan for you.
